Feminist-Themed Comics Anthology on Kickstarter

Editors Shannon O’Leary and Joan Reilly have raised more than $16,000 for their contemporary comics anthology, The Big Feminist BUT.

Some of the writers and cartoonists who will be contributing pieces for this collection include Jeffrey Brown, Gabrielle Bell, Lauren Weinstein and Josh Neufeld. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “With The Big Feminist BUT, we’ve put together a first rate collection of comics that address a wide spectrum of great big BUTS! We started a conversation – and now we need your help to keep it going. We asked some of the most talented ladies (and gentlemen) working in comics and animation today, along with some of the smartest writers we know to “but” into the heated conversation about the much more level but still contradictory playing field both sexes are struggling to find their footing on today.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
